June 24, 2015 at 6:04 PM (PT)
ESPN RADIO's MIKE AND MIKE IN THE MORNING is not moving to NEW YORK next FEBRUARY after all, the network announced TODAY (6/24). The statement left open the possibility that a move might come at a later date, however.
The move was announced at the network's Upfront presentation, but in a statement issued today, ESPN said, "After carefully considering and working through all aspects of a potential move, we have decided that the show will remain in BRISTOL (CT) for now. This opportunity with MIKE AND MIKE remains worthy of strong consideration for continued growth of one of our most successful franchises. As part of our overall strategy, we remain committed to integrating content across MIKE AND MIKE, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, and the new 7-9 a.m. live SPORTSCENTER, which will debut in FEBRUARY.
"We will also continue down the path we started several months ago with appearances by CRIS CARTER during football season, JAY WILLIAMS during basketball season, and JEMELE HILL and michael smith as regular contributors."
